Behind the Desk: Josh S.
You all love the Underneath the Hoodie series and now we’re bringing back the Behind the Desk series, about our beloved and much appreciated Front Desk staff. These CrossFitters take care of the important duties of checking in our members, handling walk-ins, tidying up after classes, and so many other things that it would take forever to list them. They are the glue that holds this gym together.
A couple weeks ago, it was Janelle. And now (drum roll, please), introducing...
Name: Josh Schneiderman
Where were you born and where did you grow up: Born and raised in Northeast Philly.
How long have you been CrossFitting, and how did you arrive at CFSBK? A few months shy of two years. A few summers ago, I did a foundations cycle at an affiliate in the Philly 'burbs and then never returned for a bunch of reasons. I moved to Brooklyn in the fall of 2012 and quickly grew bored with my routine of running, pull-ups, and push-ups. I knew I wanted to get back into CrossFit, so I signed up for another foundations cycle at CFSBK. I didn't really shop around, because we seemed like the best (and we are).
What are you up to when you're not at 597 Degraw Street: Teaching English at Hunter College. I'm also finishing a PhD in American literature at the CUNY Graduate Center.
First album that you loved: Bruce Springsteen, Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J.
"Ask me about that time I..." Hitchhiked around the Virgin Islands.
Favorite restaurant or bar in Brooklyn: It's a toss-up between Guero's (tacos) and Doris in Bed-Stuy.
Favorite and least favorite lift: Favorite: clean. Least favorite: thruster.
Any Front Desk PSAs you'd like to share? Brooklyn Boulders is at the end of the block on the right.
